the leader of The conservative party, Moderaterna, Ulf Kristersson, lost the election for Prime Minister in the Swedish Parliament. In order for Sweden is to continue without a new government. The previous Prime Minister, the social Democrat, Stefan Löfven, will remain at the Council table or in the office. 195 of 349 deputies voted against Kristersson. The conservative politicians wanted to, together with the Christian Democrats to form a minority government.

His defeat had been expected. In the run-up to Kristersson had lost the support of its two traditional partners, the centre party and the liberals. Your Alliance would have had in the Parliament no majority and would be dependent on the votes of other parties, for example, the right-wing populist Sweden Democrats. That’s not what Liberals and the centre party. They demanded of Kristersson cross-block negotiations with the social Democrats and the Swedish Greens. The social Democrats refused to support a centre-Right government.

After the election on may 9. September, neither the conservative camp nor the red-green camp have a majority in Parliament. The Sweden Democrats received 17.5 percent of the votes.

“this vote is not about Ulf Kristersson, as Prime Minister, but to give the Sweden Democrats do not have a decisive impact,” said the Head of the centre party, Annie Lööf. She pleaded for a cross-block collaboration. Observers expect that Lööf gets the next order to form a government.
